If you are not white enough then don't be bothered to go there unless you want to be humiliated. The owner is very rude and racist that has no interest in serving other skin colors rather than white skin. They will treat you as if you can't afford for a $1 bottle of beer.

I stayed here for a few days while travelling Vietnam. I was completely unimpressed from the very beginning. I phoned about a week in advance to reserve bedrooms. The first person to answer the phone hung up on me. I called back and another woman answered. She was very abrupt and I felt as though the whole booking process wasn't... More

We did not stay at the guest house however we met some volunteers for vulnerable women in Vietnam who had no choice but to stay at their accommodation which they described as very noisy. The music can be played at their bar as late as 3am. Not ideal when you have to work in the morning. I would tell you... More

Please do not go to this place. The owner needs to learn how to treat people as currently she is just a horrible, vile, bossy person. My friends and I work near HCMC and have frequented this place for a cheap beer on the little chairs outside on the pavement on quite a few occasions. Up until now we have... More

This place was always full with backpackers so me and my partner meet up with some Vietnamese friends we met travelling in Singapore. As all the reviews state the old women there is unbelievably rude. We were asked to move into the back of the room so we couldn't see the street. As we were catching up with friends this... More

This place is reasonably priced, the rooms are clean an comfortable, though with no windows or natural light. The issue here is the entire building is tiled and the bar at the bottom of the stairwell is super loud and goes till 3am, then you need to listen to the loud music the owner plays while cleaning up till 4am....

We went here for a drink, at least... That was our plan. We sat down on the first row of chairs and wanted something to drink. We ordered two beer, but when the old lady saw us, she pointed at two empty chairs behind us. We wanted to sit in the front row, to watch the busy street and everyone... More

This is a great place to have a drink! Right on the street and price is cheap. The woman who runs the place is tough and doesn't put up with jerks so don't be an jerk! You can buy food from bikes and carts as they pass by the outdoor seating

The rooms have no protection from the noise of Bui Vien Street so bring some ear plugs. The woman who seemed to be the only staff member was friendly, but she can't speak much English. The location is perfect and that is why we booked it, in the heart of the backpacker's district. It was relatively clean and had good... More

I didnt like this place. The older lady that works there is very unfriendly. She got angry at me when I didnt want to order another drink when I just finished my beer. She also constantly wants to move you around at night, to fill all space on her piece of the sidewalk. Very anoying when you are in a... More
